TEAFM goes live with Studer

TEAFM goes live with Studer

Published: ASIA

MALAYSIA: Having first gone to air in mid-July, TEAFM is a brand new English and Mandarin radio station based in Kuching, Malaysia. Prior to going live, the station enlisted the services of regional distributor Mahajak Trio Electronic Sdn Bhd, who supplied the new studio spaces with equipment from Studer, JBL and AKG.

‘TEAFM flew its team to Kuala Lumpur at the beginning of this year and we were pleased to give them a demonstration of the Harman system,’ said Mahajak Trio senior manager, sales and project, Lee Chin Kah, who recalled that the station was seeking a 'reliable, flexible and cost-effective' solution. ‘They were impressed and are pleased with the Studer technology.’

Both the main and backup studio at TEAFM now sport Studer OnAir 1500 12-fader consoles, with a Nano SCore router deployed in the main control room for the local insertion unit to be inserted to the different transmission paths. In addition, Mahajak supplied JBL LSR4328P studio monitors, AKG 4500BC and D5 microphones, and AKG 141MKII headphones.

‘I’m very happy with the sound of the JBL LSR4328P studio monitors,’ offered Mr Arif, broadcast engineer at TEAFM. ‘The sound is very smooth and detailed over the entire range and their Room Mode Correction (RMC) makes a very noticeable difference in the tonality and detail in the bass. This is really a good studio speaker at the right price point and we know we made the right choice on this. Thanks to Mahajak Trio for recommending this speaker to us.’

In the main control room, the automation server system will reportedly drive the local insertion via the GPI connection to the Nano SCore. The Mahajak team configured four GPI connections for both studios’ audio feeds to different transmission paths for redundancy. In the event of a main studio failure, the automation will trigger the backup studio via the GPI and feed the audio to both transmission paths automatically.

‘I’m really impressed with the Studer OnAir 1500 – it is so simple to configure and it takes me less than 15 minutes to prepare the audio for airing,’ furthered Mr Arif. ‘The console is really user-friendly and requires no advance programming. With quick training from Lee Chin Kah, I’m now very confident to handle this console with my other staff.'
